LESSON 3 -
Use the Forward Roll with all the Chords learned so far
Am E A D
Plus learn the new chord C Major shown below.
Practice the forward roll till it is very fluid and making sure all the notes of the chords are clear no buzzing or dead notes
For a complete beginner this may take days or even weeks to perfect. Just keep practicing the mechanics of the forward roll & playing the chords.
Video of Picking Pattern Number One:-
The Forward Roll using the C Major chord
Practise this picking pattern till you are totally comfortable with it, it needs to become second nature
Listen to the Audio File here and practice the Forward Roll exercises 4 times on each of the chords Am C D A E
The timing (beat) is to be even
1 2 3 4 ~ 1 2 3 4 ~ 1 2 3 4...etc. Accent on the Thumb. (Make the thumb sound a little stronger than the fingers.) This is the speed you are aiming for eventually. Practice a little every day.
